When he turned 34
But who's counting
He couldn't find anyone
Who wanted to party

So he walked around a playground
With a bag of Mickey's Tallboys
And he heard the sound of laughter
And he followed it for fifteen blocks

There was a house between Mavis and Water
They were out on the porch
They were inside playing quarters
And he said, "Don't you know the game Kazaam?
It's a better game"

"You point your elbow at someone
And say somebody else's name
And it alternates whose turn it is
And if you lose you drink"
They said, "Man, you really make us think
Yeah, you make us think and so"

Tonight we're gonna be the party
We will party all night long
We are the party generation
So have a seat, what's in the bag? Party on

Round about one or two
It started winding down
And he knew what they needed
They needed donuts

So they walked out to
Krispy Kruller's All Nite Sugar Palace
It was there in the doorway
He said, "Oh, well maybe not"

Inside there were six women talking
They were the most justified angry ex-girlfriends
And they swivelled around slowly
Like they saw something bad
Through the eyes in the back of their heads
Like he always knew they had

And they said, "What a coincidence"
And "Hey you're just the man
We were saying that you did the best you could
You're fine we understand and so"

Tonight we're gonna be the party
We will party all night long
We are the party generation
You were the best but we'll survive, party on

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Woah-oh

In the morning they sent him home
With a designated driver
And he lay down and thought
About the whole night

And he looked up at the photo
That he bought at a junk shop
It was only fifty cents
But he framed it and everything

It was the kind of party
That you hope never ends
The lucky party boy
Surrounded by his friends

And they were all in pointed hats
Caught in a rebel birthday shout
And he was at the candles
With his mom there to help him out

There was a lot that you could learn
If you lay near them
Like if you listened you could hear them
And he could hear them

They say," Tonight we're gonna be the party
We will party all night long
We are the party generation
So lift your head lift your head, party on"

Tonight we're gonna be the party
We will party all night long
We are the party generation
So lift your head and blow 'em out, yeah

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Tonight we're gonna be the party
We will party all night long
We are the party generation
So lift your head and blow 'em out, party on
Tonight we're gonna be the party
